will discuss a national school choice week and the education options available to students across the country. first, we want about what's coming up on c-span2 and c- span3. 3's an2's booktv and c-span american history take -- american history tv ticket to santa fe, new mexico. that is coming up at noon -- a visit to local literary landmarks, interviews with authors from the area. here is a clip from santa fe writer james morris as he talks about joseph pulitzer and his book. >> i am james mcgrath morris. behind me stand some early printing presses. this seemed like a perfect place to talk about the man who revolutionized american newspapers. what i for started working on the book, people would react with recognition when i was writing about joseph pulitzer. it was clear from their expressions of anger about the name and not anything about his life. he shares his fate with alfred nobel, which is being well known for prize, but not well known for what he did in his life. alfred nobel was an explosive munitions maker. few people understand the significant role joseph pulitzer played in american
, you have terrible education systems that are failing. >> sean: and also the gangs violence, but what about the change in the educational system. >> teachers unions. of course they are democratic party. my party, the fact is in places like chicago, between the corruption, the unions and what has been historic problem by the way in 1930s it goes back to having mobs involved. we have gangster city and gangster politics. we have a mayor that should be doing something with this problem that isn't. >> it's unfortunate. >> the president should go there because it is his hometown. you know why, because he wants to have a solution that is cosmetic rather than deal with the real problems, mental health and whole bit. >> i love it, conversion. beautiful. >> please. >> that is very sweet. >> sean: peace and love on the hannity program. will the obama administration admit the interrogation methods that was implemented by george w. bush, that is what led us to bin laden. we'll check in with liz cheney and frank luntz will play for you our favorite superbowl ads. what high profile commercial landed
'm grateful for his education and there is no comparison between the quality of this man and chuck hagel. they are in different sandboxes. i'm very grateful for people like this who we desperately need in times like this. >> we go to the independent line. this is doug, welcome to the conversation. caller: thanks for taking my call and thanks to c-span. i think the only one that had any sanity and knew the questions that were going to be asked. we did not get any answers to them. how is the decision made? what are the requirements? the independent said we should have a court that regardless who the president is they should not have a unilateral way to document nominate someone. people in this country don't know about the mddaa, the national defense thorgs act which allows the president to designate a person who he feels is a terrorist or supporting terrorist organizations to deprive him of life, liberty and not be able to go in front of a court. you can't say listen, you have the wrong person. we can be unilaterally detained. there is no question about, for instance, the propaganda guy th
to cantor today. >> we'll advance proposals aimed at producing results in areas like education, health care, innovation, and job growth. our solutions will be based on the conservative principles of self-reliance, faith in the individual, trust in family, and accountability in government. our goal is to ensure that every american has a fair shot to the earn success and achieve their dreams. >> what a cover-up. your party ought to be ashamed of itself. you spent months in every state legislative capital trying to keep black people and poor people from voting or young people. now you're out pretending that you care about opportunity in america. it's an absurdity eric cantor -- >> the speech by eric cantor was a very good speech. >> if it wasn't given by him maybe. >> eric cantor is a good guy. he's got a family. he cares about this country. he's a patriot. he cares about making government work better and this is a reform speech. i thought -- because it was practical. i think for republicans they can't be the party of bob dole caring only about the deficit. they have to care about practical --
of the healthcare spending. that is an important point. >> let's switch to another passionate topic. education. quite a few questions from the audience on how much can we afford to fund and where should we be funding and investing in the educational system? should it be done on a national level or a state level? >> let's mix it up, you go first. >> i have read that test scores of american elementary and secondary educational students have not increased and the famous nation at risk report in the early 1980's. even though spending has increased dramatically. i question whether the solution to the problem is, let's take those systems and pour money into it are. it's hard to argue against earning more money, that and possibly hurt. but you basically have major structural flaws in the way the system is organized. it is not producing the results that we need. i strongly believe that -- i would say, after entitlement spending, i would put the quality of our educational outcomes as the greatest long-term threat to america's economic strength. it is the most important thing, and it has to do with stru
mailers in march, next month, and will be conducting a number of educational efforts to make sure we reach all business customers. as we get closer to the delivery scheduled change in in august, we will be publishing information in post offices, putting it online and other customer contact to make sure our residential customers know. let me conclude with a couple of thoughts. this announcement today is just one part of a much larger strategy to return the postal service to long-term financial stability. the plans saves $2 billion annually, that we have a $20 billion gap to close. we are striving to raise revenues, reduce costs and gain efficiencies throughout the entire organization and making this change to our delivery schedule is a big-ticket item and simply too big of a cost savings to ignore. in fact, i would strongly argue it would be irresponsible for the postal service not to pursue this course. second, we are implementing this approach to improve our overall business performance. there is a strong and growing demand for our package service and we need to meet that over the coming
were all going to act, no matter how we were involved in the project of educating our kids -- we were going to put our kids first. that sounds like obstruction, but when you are in the hard work of having to close schools, it gives you an ability to remind people of what the interest of kids.ch is acting in whether it is our compact or whether it is here, particularly here, because of the detailed nature, it does give us a road map. and i think it holds together. employer verification, a path to citizenship, making sure we are not rejecting talented people from other countries that have a ph.d. is and a real contribution to make here, and so on all of these things, in a substantive way, hang together. but the politically hang together. over years of debates on immigration reform, it has been clear what the component pieces are that are necessary for a large deal. i can filibuster all day long, but i do think colorado, in some sense, it is unusual, maybe. we seem to -- the ski resorts of mentioned earlier -- a huge number of moving pieces. >> part of politics is put yourselves in the s
to me. she was great. she is articulate, very well educated, did some wonderful things, knew how to handle the power of male egos. but the press would not give her the same accolades, the general media would not give for this and accolades, not because she was competent, but because of her political ideology. there is some dispute bi -- skewed bias rating hillary clinton for some of the wrong things. host: on twitter -- "the washington post" adds this as far as analysis of her time in office -- "many of clinton's successes appeared to be due largely to her personal popularity and famous work ethics, attributes that were on display in her final days in office." nevada. caller: i would like to make a few comments about hillary clinton. i think the only reason she ever had her job was because of her husband, bill. she did exactly what she has been told to do by the president's, and a lot of us are not on tune with president obama's schedule, especially this benghazi deal. whenever a person throws her hands up in the air and is not want to admit to any responsibility of a job done po
.1 million new jobs added in this economy and i think that the problems are we have to invest in education, make sure people have opportunities and make sure that the government doesn't pull back right now. >> what we also know is there are republicans who still strongly say and assert that the stimulus did not work and they do not believe in exactly what you just said. >> economists, the majority of those interviewed by "wall street journal" believes the stimulus works. 3 million jobs because of the stimulus and other thing is about the education thing i mentioned before. the unemployment rate for people with college degrees are higher is 3.7%. unemployment rate for people who don't have high school diplomas, 12%. education matters. why exactly would we want to cut investment in our infrastructure and education at this time? >> zachary, let's play what alan krueger said. he was on with chuck todd earlier talking about the politics of what we're watching as it relates to this recovery. let me play it, please. >> you have a pretty good jobs report and i know, you know, i know what you'll pr
and strong supporter of catholic education, i once again this year introduced a resolution honoring catholic schools. h.res. 46 expresses support for the vital contributions of the thousands of calt lick elementary and secondary schools -- catholic elementary and secondary schools in the united states and the key role they play in promoting and ensuring a brighter, stronger future for our nation. i'd like to thank the 28 members who co-sponsored this bipartisan resolution with me. since 1974 the national catholic education association, the united states conference of catholic bishops have organized and planned national catholic schools week. this year's theme, catholic schools raise the standards highlights recent initiatives undertaken by catholic schools across the country to strengthen the already exemplary standards. america's catholic schools produce graduates with the schools and integrity needed by our businesses, governments, and communities emphasizing a well-rounded educational experience in instilling the values of giving back to community and helping others. nearly every catholic
is actually through the pme, through the nco academy, through the officer sessions, education and training is teach men and women how to manage, um, some of the challenges that are going to come up related to gender, related to dating, related to rumors, related to concerns about if i push a woman, am i going to be accused of singling her out and harassing her, or am i then developing her and her skills? we can share the lessons that we've learned to make them more effective at it rather than leave each sort of man and woman to invent it themselves or figure it out themselves or learn through trial and error which we can potentially, um, lose out or wash out in other women. >> good. thank you, dr. miller. very insightful. i think we've heard a good discussion up to this point about the possibility of gender-neutral physical standards and how they would be implemented and enforced. the necessary role of leadership, continuing to build on changing the culture. i'd like to allow the, or give the audience an opportunity now to ask some questions. gayle, would you like to ask the first one? >>
've never seen someone so emotional what they're testifying. a man 40 years he quit because it was education malpractice he said in the schools. >> alisyn: that that was peggy the group for americans for prosperity, a hearing in texas over the controversial school curriculum used by about three quarters of the state and we're hearing more compelling testimony from texas educators who call some of these lessons down right anti-american. let's listen what they told texas lawmakers. >> here is the lesson, to ask our american students to design a communist flag, imagine a new socialist nation is creating a flag and you've been put in charge based on radical ideas aka socialism, marxism, and indoctrinating our children with pro islam lesso lessons. >> i resigned as soon as i could find another job, i felt i was abetting a crime of civil rights and human rights. and teaching was like a surgeon forced to use filthy scalpels, as long as i cooperated i was guilty of malpractice. before i'd been a slave i'd be buried in my grave and go home to my lord and be -- (applause) >> well, republicans from te
in education. >> this weekbe is about the future of american public education. >> supporters of the national school choice week campaign kicked off the celebration this week with 14 planned whistle stops across the country. >> organizers say research increasingly shows that students in poor performing public schools given alternatives, whether they be better public schools, charter schools, magnet schools, homeschooling do better. >> the they the says parents who select schools and schools of choice are outperforming the traditional system. they are improving faster than the traditional system. >> case and point is the washington, d.c. opportunity scholarship program that gives 1700 d.c. students vouchers to attend private schools. >> they have a 91% graduation rate. grad rate in d.c. schools hover around 60%. >> like tremendous popularity and shortage of slots the obama administration capped enrollment in the d.c. program under pressure from teachers union. earlier in 2008 campaign speech to the american federation of teachers then candidate obama criticized the opponent for supporterring v
in government, why they are good policies, good principals, to help people. i talked a lot today about education, about empowering parents to make choices so we can save kids who we're going to lose from nonperforming schools. i talked about how we've got working families struggling to get through the month. how do we help them? we help by growing an economy. we help them by giving them the tools to go about their daily life, to manage their affairs, to reduce healthcare costs, to remove some of the costly taxes coming from obamacare on healthcare. there are a lot of things we can do to help families and that's what i talked about today. really making life work again for so many millions of americans who need relief. >> many republicans say the party has a serious messaging problem. your ideas may be right but you can't get the message through. listen to bobby jindal on the 25th of january. >> we've got to stop being the stupid party. i'm serious, it's time for a new republican party that talks like adults. >> so many republicans say you're getting the stuffing beaten out of you on messaging fro
wasteful spending, we can't just cut our way to prosperity. deep indiscriminate cuts to education and training, energy and national security will cost us jobs. it will slow down our recovery. it's not the right thing to do for the economy. it's not the right thing for folks who are out there still looking for work. the good news is this doesn't have to happen. for all of the drama and disagreements we've had over the past few years, democrats and republicans have still been able to come together and cut the deficit by more than $2.5 trillion through a mix of spending cuts and higher rates on taxes for the wealthy. a balanced approach has achieved more than $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction. that's more than halfway towards the $4 trillion in deficit reduction that economists and elected officials from both parties believe is required to stabilize our debt. so we've made progress. and i still believe that we can finish the job with a balanced mix of spending cuts and more tax reform. the proposals that i put forward during the fiscal cliff negotiations in discussions with speaker
. it's appropriate i do this at georgetown. as the product of jesuit education, as a catholic and as a beneficiary over the years of your outstanding faculty and staff and your important policy contributions that this university has made in a number of areas that affect people of this country. i'm truly honored to have this opportunity today. i've had a deep and abiding respect for georgetown throughout the almost 40 to 50 years that i've been involved in public service. and i have a deep respect for the generation of leaders that have gone forward from this campus to serve our nation. i just had the opportunity to meet with your cadets. some of the cadets in the rotc program. as someone who went through the rotc program at santa clara university and then ultimately served two years in the army, i can tell you that i have tremendous admiration for those that have made the decision to serve this country in uniform. the talents of these men and women and the innovative programs at georgetown's new institute of women, peace and security underscore for me the university's leadersh
on domestic issues such as education choice, the growth of government and the rise of libertarianism. he's the author of libertarianism described by the "l.a. times" as a well researched manifesto of libertarian ideas. the edit -- on that is ilya shapiro, senior fellow and constitutional study of the care and editor-in-chief of the cato supreme court review. is provided testament to congress and state legislators and escorted of cato's program. election directly on behalf of the federalist society another victim is a member of board of visitors at the fund for american studies and was an inaugural washington scholar at the "national review" in state. after that with chris edwards, director at cato. he is a top expert on federal and state tax and budget issues. he's also testified to congress on fiscal issues many times and articles on tax and budget was have appeared in the "washington post," "the wall street journal" and other major newspapers. is the author and co-author of articles. last but not least we have alex nowrasteh. he is at the center for prosperity. writer that he was the i
are struggling during this financial crisis. we get calls related to those. we are trying to educate homeowners about that so they did not become victims in the first place. but a lot of people will lose their homes of the situation. host: christy romero, special inspector general for tarp. the question about the teeth -- question of to this executive pay, if treasury signed off on it, what can sigtarp really do? guest: we make recommendations to treasury and a half to be dealt with. we also report to congress. we send these reports to congress and congress helps put teeth in it. but a ultimately we have a lot of recommendations that are not implemented and they need to be. this is an example that shows how bad it can be a treasury does not implement the recommendation. i am looking forward to a new secretary of treasury coming in to talk about those recommendations and changes that can be made. and we will not give up. we will look at 2013 pay. we will not stop. because alternately we are here to protect taxpayers. host: amelia, ohio. democrats' line. caller: how are you? my question is about
court, there's one in affirmative action, higher education at the university of texas. we can see a decision in that probably soon. it was back in october, i think voting rights case out of alabama questioning the continuing wisdom and constitutionalty of a law, the section of the voting rights act that requires states certain jurisdiction. i'm not talking about the confederacy. to clear any election regulation be it moving your poling location from a firehouse to a schoolhouse by the federal government. it is not correlated of voting rates of minorities. so we're probably going to see the supreme court strike that down which will make waves. and of course, a couple of gay marriages are before the court. it is highly unlikely that the supreme court this term will strike down all restrictions on gay marriage, require all states to provide it. the cases they took can be decided without reaching that point. one is the defensive marriage act, section three about federal benefits that the federal government has to give certain benefits to people who are lawfully married in their state
by the taliban stopped her crusading for the right to educate girls is now speaking out for the first time since the near fatal attack and two more surgeries only this weekend. >> today you can see that i'm alive. i can speak. i can see you. i can see everyone, and today i can speak and i'm getting better day by day. this is a second life. i want to serve the people, and i want every girl, every child to be educated, and for that reason we have organized mulala fund. >> northbound's kier is in birmingham, england, outside the hospital. kier, this is remarkable. it is just a miracle of her spirit, of the doctors who have helped her, the family who has been with her. she's now also the youngest nominee for the nobel peace prize. what are you hearing from the medical team around her about her prognosis? >> that's right. incredible. she is still in the hospital behind me recovering. what an amazing recovery. as those comments on camera, the first since she was shot by the taliban, attacked simply for campaigning for the rights of young women to be educated. in those comments she has such poise and y
will be outlining a new agenda for his party, focusing on issues like education and health care and spend less time talking about the deficit. >> really? oh, yes. eric cantor to the rescue. he is ready to save the republican image and put a stop to the electoral college losses, right? of course, this is not the first time eric cantor has tried to save the party. you see, it actually is the fourth attempt that he has had. in 2009, cantor held a pizza party, remember that? with jeb bush and mitt romney by launching the national council for a new america that didn't work. a year later, cantor was back at it. he was one of the young guns ready to take the republican party by storm. >> there is a better way, and a new team is ready to bring america back. eric cantor, kevin mccarthy, paul ryan joined by common-sense conservative candidates from across the country. together, they are ready to make history. together they are the young guns. >> the good old days. in 2011, cantor launched the you cut program. he wanted to get the public to vote on weekly cuts to federal government. another year, another fail
movers, weak outlook from green mountain coffee roasted, better than expected profits at education company devry. and over 7%, internet services company akamai slowly reporting revenue growth, good news on big time up about 18% and surprise fourth quarter profit from insurance giant allstate. could we get a look at that, allstate is up about 2 1/4%. better than expected profit in real estate brokage. cbre trading up about 10% now and robot maker, cautious first quarter guidance. and that affected the stock big time over 7% and better than expected profits in auto parts, retailer o'reilly automotive, that stock jumping over 10%. does george lucas know something that we don't? why is george lucas filing paper work that would allow him to sell his shares in disney? 2 billion dollars worth of shares? we're going to be asking our stock guy coming next.

coming back from world war ii, going back to the farm and having an educated population that would have some political power. i am not suggesting this is a conspiracy by any means. this was simply people of social clubs, the circles they operated in, acting for their self-interest and for some of them, they thought this was the best thing for the country. these men represented disparate interests and for the most part they were technocrats. they viewed the world through this germans. some of them had grown up on farms and didn't if think much of the idea. their definition of reforming agriculture meant substituting capital for farm labour and replacing small farms with largely integrated ones that could supply the food company's with the ingredients they needed. so the ced and the business interests they represented lobbied against the new deal farm programs and they began to really successfully start chipping away at them in the 1915s during the eisenhower administration. in 1962 the ced published a report prepared by 50 influential business meters and 18 economists from leading univer
of the caucasus and civility. we are seeing this. this is a man who a few days ago talked about education reform in the context of firing the janitors in schools and putting the kids to work. a lot of the media called that unconventional. [laughter] let's repeal child labor laws that we fought hard for in this country. bring in dickens to chronicle it. i do think there is the cruelty amidst the reality show debates we have been subjected to. who is running this, entertainment or news? there is a cruelty when people cheer that someone dies without health care or bbo a soldier that dies in iraq. >> i am joking about herman cain. he is a guy who cannot hide the truth well. that makes me more comfortable with the idea that i know who he is about so i can make a decision. >> are you talking about the women coming forward or the fact that he said he did not know what he would do about afghanistan when he became president and would check it out? [laughter] >> we have had presidents who have been reelected like that. we talked about transparency in the value to our society. -- and the value to our socie
. the peace walk is really telling young people to choose education over guns, not to solve your problems with gun violence but with diplomacy and that's so important and with all of this gun violence happening around america, the stand your ground law, mr. roberts, is a law that in trayvon's situation makes no sense. how can you be the aggressor, how can you initiate the confrontation and then say, after i shoot a kid in the heart, i was just standing my ground? so this trayvon martin amendment to the stand your ground law, simply, you can't be aggressor and start the confrontation and then claim that you stood your ground. >> mr. crump, i want to talk to you about what took place in court this week. zimmerman and his side were trying to push more time before going to trial. explain what happened in court and then who was witness number eight? >> certainly. on february 5th, which would have been trayvon martin's 18th birthday, we had a scheduled court hearing to talk about different issues in the trial and that courtroom on that day, the spirit of trayvon martin was definitely in the cou
help educate so people can make an intelligent decision, and healthcare is a huge issue, but this is the right issue, to educate the people to make their own decisions, but, the government length lating i legit going to solve the problem it will backfire. charles: if the government were to get involved, would it be a good place to start with food stamps and welfare recipients to put limits on what they can buy, since they are using taxpayer money. >> i'm not sure what welfare has to do with feeding children in school. this is quite difficult, if you look at map of food deserts, you can -- >> that is a cop-out. that is a cop-out, let me tell you, -- >> it is not a cop-out. charles: if you open a salad stastand -- no one goes there. >> you can't for get about that, you are trying to take fact that you want to look at. charles: i'm trying to have a legitimate conversation, i. >> i'm trying to have this this conversation with you. charles: i'm telling that you is 1000% junk, that is bunch, phony, that is not true, people go to super markets, they walk past the apples and buy
spending, we cannot just cut our way to prosperity. deep indiscriminate cuts to education and training, energy, and national security will cost us jobs and it will slow down our recovery. it's not the right thing to do it for the economy. it's not the right thing for folks out there still looking for work. host: your reaction? guest: the president was serious about not slowing down the economy, he would get a handle on his environmental protection agency and stop some of the regulations. he would approved the keystone pipeline. that is something that has been sitting on his desk a long time. there are things that could be done to help the economy apart from the sequestered. the reason the sequester is tough is when you pick up the federal budget and say we will try to find savings in the budget, every single line has a constituency and a lobbyist somewhere, whether it is a municipal organization, whether it is a big defense contractor, everyone has something that interests them. that's why it's difficult to say we are one to take out this line of that line when there is a loser in that
are important, education and infrastructure of the health and human service needs. so medicaid will need to have some flexibility, much of the software going to watch as we go forward. let me just finish by ending where i started. we need to address the rising cost of health care. i do think the affordable care act does that. i think we provided an opportunity with our health care exchange in utah as a model based on good principles that allows businesses to continue to provide the benefit and help with competitive forces and consumer control to, in fact, have an impact on the rising cost of health care. it may be imperfect but it's a step i think in the right direction. again, the fundamental position that i'm taking and we are taking in utah is free market works if we allow but it takes politicians like myself and others out there to be disciplined and to give time for the marketplace to work. we sometimes are so anxious to fix a problem that we don't let the marketplace make the adjustments that are necessary to get the right outcome. and again as i said, if we want the best quality product,
'm there to figure out why people commit this crime, to show how it happens and educate people. we approach this like it's a continuing story and continue to cover it. >>> from nbc news in washington, the world's longest-running television program, this is "meet the press" with david gregory. substituting today, chuck todd. >>> good morning. it's super bowl sunday. and here in washington, some big showdowns are on the horizon. we've got it all covered this morning, including the big game tonight. bob costas of nbc sports will be here to talk about football and player safety issues. >>> but we want to start with a washington battle on full display this week when the president's pick to head the pentagon, former republican senator chuck hagel, came under fire from members of his own party during a very contentious confirmation hearing. >> name one person in your opinion who's intim nated by the israeli lobby in the united states senate. >> are we right or wrong? that's a pretty straightforward question. >> senator hagel, please answer the question i asked. today, do you think unilateral sanctions would
